A new poll commissioned by Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder Bob Johnson and conducted by Zogby showed that 55 percent of African-American adults do not agree with the LGBT community’s claim that gay rights are the same as civil rights for blacks. …

I sometimes wonder if a poll were taken, how many people would vote 2 + 2 = 22, only to be slightly overcome by those who think it equals 4.

There is also a difference between blacks and Hispanics, Hispanics and Asians, Asians and Arabs. But white Democrats see them as one big monolithic plantation.

Recreational choices are on par with human rights.

But not the philosophical / spiritual choices.

Zogby, talk about a discredited polling firm. In this case number is not surprising. The gay marriage ballot measures that all lost prior to last cycle was being held back in many cases by African Americans. Since Obama evolved on the issue though many AA’s have also begun to say it is ok now. So many do not believe it is civil rights but it does not really matter because the largest swing demographics in the last year has been AA’s and they are now for it and picking up supporters everyday.

This is a done deal. Even if court does not rule on equal protection this time they will have no choice but to take a case within 2 years and will have to rule. I think if forced Kennedy for sure is a yes and Roberts at that point may join.

What worries me most of all accepting this will be the law of the land soon this could be a wedge issue in the mid terms. You know republicans hate everyone and everything. With this issue up front it will be pushed. Polling shows it has does resonate.

Since it is only a matter of time might be better if courts rule against republicans to get the issue off the table. I know fight to the end but I see no way this will not eventually be law of the land.

Indeed.

Behavior is NOT ancestry.

The public schools, the universities, and the “news” and entertainment media have done an amazing job of transforming thinking people into idiots.

It does not matter.

I will not vote for anyone who supports this.

I will leave the slot blank or write-in somebody whose worldview is more congruent with mine.

Anybody who does not believe that this will bring religious persecution has not seen what has happened in the Netherlands and Canada, where preachers have been fined and jailed for preaching the Word of God.

You cannot preach the Gospel unless you can identify SIN.

As Billy Graham said, before you can get anybody saved, you have to get them lost first.

“That is astonishingly low!”

Exactly my reaction when I read that...”ONLY 55%!?”

From what I’ve read over time I’d say it’s much more than that.

Honesty requires that one acknowledge the part that the overthrow of traditional sexual mores has played. In my lifetime, I have seen heterosexual fornication go from being something shameful that was whispered about and, at least in public, confined to Hollywood. Today, THAT perversion is the "new normal."

"If it feels good, do it" is probably Satan's greatest triumph.

They had better be careful with stating their opinions....democRATs have a nasty habit of putting burning crosses up in black folks yards that try to jump off of the plantation.

Our founders were quite clear on the subject. They did not segragate, divide, pit one group against the other (like Fearless Reader). We all have, “Creator Given Rights”, minus those very few we assigned to the small Federal Government and subsequently to our individual states.

There is nothing about black, white, red, SSAD, brilliant, retarded, etc.

Only inferior people keep dredging up the past to compensate for their pi$$ poor performance in life. Successful people always strive to be better while losers like Mudslimes and others living on the government plantation continue to play the division cards be they race, sex, sexual orientation, religion...

Because they will never take responsibility for their own life choices they are doomed to be perpetually inferior.

Good analysis. I think you're right about many in the black population evolving with Obama on this issue. Democrats, en masse, quickly accept new party lines without debate. I have Democrat acquaintances who often experience political epiphanies after viewing the TODAY show.

immmutibility of skin

The bell curves of behavior and other characteristics are no myth but 100% hard facts.

Funny how we can find “traits” in sub classes of all other life forms yet humans are to be immune from such differences? I think not. We have been wrapped around the axle of confusing Equal Rights with Equality. Two completely different concepts smashed together to give a false belief in equality.

If we constantly ignore or excuse the differences they can never be addressed and will only create a greater schism among race, religion, sexes...

the bell curve has flaws that do not make it a certainty.

Skinner pretty much demonstrated behavior can be conditioned.

This is what the deviants are doing. They have conditioned judges to be blind to the science of havhavior. This is akin to the ancient pope declaring the earth is the center of the solar system. Just because a black robe fever judge declares behavior is an immutable trait does not make it so.
